Ratings & Reviews

Don Parsons is the most amazing real estate agent ever. In our opinion, if you are buying or selling your home and you don't have Don Parsons on your side you are probably leaving money on the table. If you are a first time home buyer like us, you can count on Don Parsons to be there for you every step of the way. The name of his agency is Anytime Realty, and let us assure you that Anytime = literally, any time of day/night. He'll either be right there with you himself or he will send another one of his colleagues to hold your hand in his place (and then follow up to be sure it went well). If you call him, he calls back. If you are with him, you get his undivided attention. He shows up, on time, for every appointment. If you have a question, he probably knows the answer already or can get it pretty instantly. If you need a contact for a quote for something, he has friends all over town and can help pick the right contact for your situation. If he tells you he's going to do something, he does it. You can absolutely count on Don Parsons for whatever you need. With Don Parsons, you don't just get top-notch customer service from him, but also from everyone he refers you to. When we first started thinking about buying a house we went to an online real estate database company to peek at what was for sale. We probably clicked on 7 houses to get more information and it went 4 days and not one agent called us back until we were lucky enough to click on one where Don was listed. For that listing, Don called back within 15 minutes. He talked to us for about as long, and promised to send us additional listings that we might be interested in that same day. He also recommended us to a finance company, made a same-day referral on a Saturday, and they also called us back that afternoon! Finally, we felt like we had some help in our search; not just regular help but prompt, polite, and ultra-professional help as well. From the first day, we could see that Don Parsons was a guy who does what he says he is going to do, and he does it when he says he will, and he does it very, very well. Our home search found us bidding/making an offer on three houses, with the third time being the charm. Our first offer was on an auction property, and Don stayed up with us by phone until almost midnight coaching us through the process. We won the bid, but there were other issues with the house that couldn't be overcome. Because Don is so knowledgeable about the market and the process, he was able to prepare us for this potential outcome and that preparation softened our disappointment. The next house we put an offer on was a fixer-upper. Don was able to secure many different trades to come and give us estimates so that we could make an informed offer. He has multiple contacts in many different areas and used them effectively and efficiently to help us. The seller on this house negotiated hard, but Don negotiated harder. In the end, we found a major problem on inspection and had to get our earnest money deposit back. Don again stayed with us and provided us with the kind of wise advice and counsel that at the time was hard to hear even though it was delivered softly and with utmost compassion. We can look back now and see that if we hadn't listened to him, we'd probably be spending our summer freaking out about construction cost overruns and completing several years worth of deferred maintenance instead of hanging out in our back yard. After the two other deals fell through, we were a bit exhausted and discouraged. Again, Don saved the day with more guidance. We looked at just three more houses with him and because he was so perceptive with what we wanted, one of those turned out to be The One. At this point, we basically gave him the top number we'd pay and completely turned over the negotiation to him and asked him to call us when it was over. A few days later, he called us with the happy news that we'd made a deal. My husband and I were separated by business travel and considered waiting to sign the paperwork but Don solved that problem with an electronic signature service. Later we found out from another buyer that they were making offers on the same house at the same time, but had missed it by just hours. Once again, Don Parsons for the win! From our first search to final close, our process took about 90 days. There are some people that really enjoy their work and you can tell that Don Parsons is one of them. His agency office is on Greenville Avenue, but he'll meet you at the location of your choice. Once he even offered to come to my tennis club so when I got off the court we could watch an auction together in person, and this would have been at 9 pm at night! He also has multiple top-notch qualifications. We'd add one more: Best Real Estate Agent Ever. Call Don Parsons (Anytime Realty) today. You'll be glad you did!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in North Providence, RI

My wife and I found a house we had a lot of interest in Don Parsons was the sales agent . We decided to stay with Don . That was our first mistake , all our paper work was set , pre approval . We asked Don to show us a beautiful house in NP that was in our price range . We met at his office "dunkin donuts" . We proceeded to fill out the paper work for the bid , we waited , called Don , no response. We ended up calling the listing agent for the house , she told us "yesterday was the last day to send her a bid " and then told us she didn't receive a bid from us or from Don. Don finally contacted us 2 weeks later and said he was busy and another agent would be calling to help us .............. horrible ......... only looking for big $ales

Sold a home in 2014 in Mapleville, Burrillville, RI 02839.

Don Parsons sold my house in May, 2014. When he came to see the property on the first day, he gave me tips on how to present the home to it's advantage and make it saleable. He advertised an Open House and we had at least 4 interested families on that first day. An over-asking offer was made a week later, and my house was sold.

Don was very knowledgeable; when I needed a mover, he gave me the necessary information to find a reputable and reasonable company. He was very easy to work with and I am very glad I chose Don Parsons from Anytime Realty; truly a real estate professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Pascoag, RI.

My wife and I were extremely impressed with Don during our recent experience selling and buying a house. From the initial contact through the entire process Don was professional, understanding, prompt and attentive to our every concern, issue and request. We told him our dream of living on the lake and he made it all come through within 5 weeks - finding our dream house on the lake, selling our home and closing! We had several complications throughout the process and Don was able to guide us through each one. We would highly recommend Don for any real estate business needs. Bob and Donna Wall

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Chepachet, RI.

Not only did Don help my husband and I get our dream home, he also sold our condo without us having to do any work. It was quick, easy and such a pleasure to work with Don. Not too long after he made our dreams come true, he sold my parents house in less than 48hrs from being on the market at above asking price!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Scituate, RI.

Don was very helpful and supportive throughout the entire process, going above and beyond to help move the sale along. He held multiple open houses, met contractors at the house for repairs, negotiated with workmen for prices,etc. all the while maintaining his easy, charming affability. A trustworthy, dedicated and knowledgable realtor! I've worked with him twice and I'm sure I will work with him again should i purchase again!

We found Don by accident, since then he has proven himself to be Polite, knowledgeable, and a man of his word. He has gone out of his way to show us homes for sale, neighborhoods and the hospitality of his own home. Don is a true professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Cranston, RI.

Don was extremely helpful in finding our new home. He was very thorough, knowledgeable and most importantly honest. He definitely makes you feel comfortable and does not give you the persona of a car salesman. He is very knowledgeable of the real estate market in Rhode Island. Was very helpful in walking us through the process, which definitely helped since we were first time home buyers. Was very responsive and answered all questions appropriately
